* BlindWithoutThem: Beatrice's eyesight gradually fails over the course of the series, and by the time of the reunion she is genuinely going blind. However her experience in coping with (and hiding) her failing eyesight at the camps pays off when she is able to identify the leader of the communist guerilla force just by their tone of voice.

The series dealt with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the [[WorldWarII Fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a fictional Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia.]] Having been separated from their husbands, herded into makeshift holding camps and largely forgotten by the British War Office, the women have to learn to cope with appalling living conditions, malnutrition, disease, violence and death.

* NoPeriodsPeriod: Played with: most of the time the women don't mention having to deal with their periods, but once or twice one of the younger prisoners will worry their periods have stopped due to malnutrition.

* SpecialEffectFailure: The make-up artists did their best to make the women look starved and overworked, but they all still look remarkably healthy under the paint.
